PDB identifiers usually consist of the 4-length alphanumeric identifier and the protein chain. I'm guessing 102L is the PDB identifier and A is the protein chain.

Thanks I appreciate your answer . I understand it can be the chain of the protein, but I was confused because some the secondary structure in the file has different chain of protein with the same PDB id.

Yes, a protein can have multiple chains, and these chains can have different sequences of secondary structure elements.
